Union Assistance for Students on Low Incomes
The UTS Union understands that many students are on a low income and that even low entry fees can be difficult to manage. We can provide subsidies for Union major events and activities for students who provide evidence of low income. Centrelink documents or referrals from the Financial Assistance Service in Student Services are the best way to provide evidence of low income. For more information see Student Services or the Union Information Desk on Level 3 of the Tower Building.
